You certainly chose a partner who was a match for you, and that would have been a good thing, ultimately -- it just drove you nuts is all. It felt like you and your lover had difficulty understanding each other, particularly around emotional issues. And it was funny how a lot of things -- dishes, who was buying dinner, where you were going on vacation -- turned into an emotional issue with the pair of you.
You yourself plowed through life with acumen and logic, determined to make sense of the world in front of you. Your partner, on the other hand, was more of a feeler than a thinker, and tended to overindulge your moods and notions. The result? You sometimes viewed your partner with something more akin to contempt than adoration, and neither one of you felt an easy connection with each other. The cure would have been better communication, and since you were the Great Communicator, you were well-placed for the task. If you wanted to stay in this relationship, it was up to you to bridge the gap. You could have stopped finding fault with your partner; instead, finding things to love and admire. Had you given more, you would have received much more.
